The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Growing out of their feathers

Cornish Cross chicks

We started out with 26 chicks and are down to 19.

The chicks aren't quite smart enough to come in out of the rain and prefer napping to foraging, but at least they grow quickly.

Only two and a half more weeks until our broilers are big enough to eat.

About us: Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton spent over a decade living self-sufficiently in the mountains of Virginia before moving north to start over from scratch in the foothills of Ohio. They've experimented with permaculture, no-till gardening, trailersteading, home-based microbusinesses and much more, writing about their adventures in both blogs and books.
